With the Monaco Grand Prix taking place from May 25-28, 2023, fans will have added opportunity to attend one of the most famous races on the F1 calendar.

The announcement comes just a day after the country lifted its final Covid restrictions for international travellers.

Arrivals no longer need to present proof of vaccination, proof of recovery or a negative Covid test.

The French government have warned that possible “emergency brake” measures could be reintroduced should a new variant appear.
